    Why are you asking them?  I would assume that everyone would want the option of regular drinks, and then beer/wine as well.

    Yeah I think it’s a little awkward, I might think I was only going to get one drink all night and had to chose which it was or something. I think it would be better to estimate drinks just based on what you know about people who are coming, their ages, etc. I’m providing my own alcohol so I know it’s tricky, but I’ve used some of the online drink calculators (Real Simple has one) and am just trying to guess right.

    I wouldn’t ask on the invitation. It’s a little strange, but more importantly, people may not remember or stick to their choice so you’ll be underprepared. A better plan may be to casually talk to some friends or family who drink to see if they prefer wine or beer (unless there is a special circumstance most people prefer wine/beer to soda at weddings). Even better yet – find a liquor store that will accept returns of unopened bottles (many do) and over-supply from there. Also, if your guests are anything like I am they’ll plan on having 2-3 drinks….but everyone is dancing and celebrating etc…So that 2-3 went bye-bye by the end of dinner.

    it’s ok but weird.  just estimate.  if you run out of wine, people will drink beer or water.  you would not put cake choice on your rsvp would you?

    I agree with pp.  What if someone wants wine during cocktail hr, water during dinner, and beer on the dance floor?  I think it’s hard enough to decide what to have for dinner a month from the day you send your RSVP in.  Deciding what/how much to drink and who is dd a month from now is even tougher.  Maybe your reception site can help with a guestimate on how much to buy?
